I recently graduated from Oberlin College with a B.A. in biology. Although I am most proficient in the areas of biology and chemistry, I also took extensive coursework in music, language, and history while at Oberlin. I have had experience teaching in a variety of venues, while in college as well as in high school. I taught private instrumental lessons to two middle school French horn players (each one for a year) when I was a high schooler. I was a counselor-in-training one summer at an arts camp, where I assisted the professional teachers in my workshop instruct students in baroque performance. After high school, I also tutored a young, mildly-handicapped high school student in music theory and several college students in biology. Finally, I have conducted three literature groups for middle schoolers over the years, one of which centered around a book that was tailored for a young reading level while the other two delved into a novel intended for a much older audience. I also enjoyed being a "special teacher" of Latin for three weeks as part of a middle school communications unit, where I had the opportunity to try out teaching at the front of a classroom.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I graduated from Oberlin College in 2009 with a biology degree. In order to satisfy the requirements for the major, I took 27 credits of biology coursework, including several neuroscience classes. Shortly after declaring my major, I became a tutor for the biology department and got to work with a number of students in the intro biology sequence.
I began studying music theory when I was in high school, in which I learned the basic skills necessary to write your own music. I was given an opportunity to perfect these skills in a songwriting workshop that I took shortly after graduating from high school. As a college student, I took several music theory classes at the Oberlin Conservatory (even though I was not a conservatory student), completing the 2-year intro sequence as well as an upper level counterpoint class. I also took a winter term course which focused specifically on music composition, giving me ample opportunity to create my own melodies and find various ways of harmonizing them. I am currently putting the finishing touches on a piece that I hope to hear performed by my high school band later this year.
